The internet’s favourite post-punk depression duo add a distinctly gothic colour and polish into the dense, noisy sound they burst onto the scene with, while maintaining most of their emotional impact.
Thundering, groove-driven Gothic rock introduces this new HANL sound, and despite the uncomfortable left turn that is Science Beat, a careful balance of cohesion and creativity is apparent throughout in the crisp production and concise songwriting.

No emo band have ever, or will ever, do what Cap'n Jazz did in their all-too-short lifetime.

Ah yes. The left turn, the escape, the first time that the scraps of promise scattered throughout Twenty One Pilots’ discography has coalesced into an album able to be legitimately enjoyable without punching you in the face for daring to like more than two songs.
